I have loved getting to read everyone's "best outfits of the year" posts! So handy to have all my favorite blogger's favorite outfits in one place, like your own personal highlight reel! I enjoy the "lookbook" aspect of blogging; because it's great to see what I loved wearing this year, what I wore the most, and what didn't work quite as well.
Also interesting- can you get a good feel for your year by looking at what you wore? Compared to 2013 (graduating college, starting a real job) 2014 seemed pretty routine to me. I try my best to appreciate the exciting AND mundane moments of life, because as they say, "How we spend our days, of course, is how we live our lives." That being said; I love that these outfits coordinate with highlights of my year- trips, holidays, friends visiting, my birthday, etc. Being a fashion blogger (to some degree), I obvi place some significance in what I'm wearing; and this is proof to me that what I wear ties so closely to memories of what I did.
Now presenting: my favorite outfits of 2014!
Special thanks to Huntee, Kelley, Amir, Stephanie, Mom, Andrea (I think that covers it) for taking my photos this year AKA making the blog happen.
Breakdown by month (with links to full post)
January, emerald city: An outfit made entirely of pieces I love and frequently wear (esp. the pants), pics taken in CA!
February, perfectly beautimous: The post where I talk about my "beauty routine." This skirt is a thrifted GEM.
March, leopard & donkey print: Another thrifted gem skirt, a new dress worn as a top. Loved this.
April, spring stripes: Just realizing this dress appears TWICE in this list. This combo is one of my favorites of all time!
May, the highs & lows of Banff: A "Spring" outfit in Canada! This dress was a life-saver the whole trip.
June, weekend update: birthday // weekend: Worn on my 23rd birthday. Includes another popular '14 item- my jean jacket!
July, a brunch & clog story: I love this unexpected combo, on a trip to Memphis. Hunter's fav for the year.
August, Sunflowers! : Steph took these pics so that makes the outfit even better, but this dress is perfection.
September, Denim Tourist: Out to dinner with my brother and Hunter in Chattanooga. Easy, and I felt great in this!
October, The Rand-Me-Down: My fav look from "Graphic Tee Week", love the tee dressed up with lipstick.
November, Blazer Bus: Proud of myself for resurrecting old tees. These gold loafers are another fav from '14.
December, If You're Reading This... : "New to me" clothing is just as well! Sporting goodies from a co-worker.
And my winner for the year? That's tough, but probably March, leopard & donkey print. I love every single piece that makes up this look, I got my hair done that day, AND was on my way to see my younger brother star in a show, which was one of my most special memories of the year.
Which one is your perfectly Priya winner for the year?
